Sajith raises concerns over the govt’s management of COVID -19 pandemic

Sajith Premadasa

Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa has raised concerns over the Government’s management of COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

He raised the issue under the Standing Order 27 (2) in Parliament on Tuesdy, August 3. Addressing the House, he posed the following issues:

“Does the Government acknowledge that another wave of COVID-19 pandemic is emerging in the country? Does the Government know that the number of infections, critical illnesses and deaths have risen sharply increasing in the past week? Will the Government present to this House the number of COVID-19 cases reported in the last 10 days, deaths, PCR tests and patients at Emergency Wards and General Wards of hospitals?

Is it appropriate to relax the regulations that were put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus in an environment where another COVID-19 wave is being created? By ordering Government officials to continue to report for duty from this week, would not the lives of officers with chronic illnesses, pregnant women and young children, who are considered high-risk groups for COVID-19 virus, be at risk?

Is the Government was satisfied with the ICU beds, oxygen supply, test capacity and the number of the health personnel available to the health sector and is that amount enough to control the situation that may arise in the future.

Does the Government care about what the experts say in this regard? The number of children infected with COVID-19 is also increasing. Reportedly, children have contracted COVID-19 virus and died. Do you provide statistics in this regard? Since children have not yet been vaccinated for COVID-19, what measures will the Government take to control the situation?” .
